Approaching Winter break, I knew I wanted to give back somehow and fill up my calendar. I naturally turned back to my high school and reached out to the leader of the National Honor Society at Kaukauna High School. After a few emails back and forth, I found myself sitting outside the math classrooms, waiting for students to be sent to me. At first, I was a bit apprehensive about returning to my high school and tutoring again, but I quickly found myself becoming invested in these students and their struggles--so much so that I ended up discussing math scores with numerous teachers as well as the associate principal. I had never realized how many students were failing--how many students were slipping through the cracks. Although I have only spent three days with these students so far, I have reconfirmed my ambitions to enter the education field and have realized that I want to target those kids who are not seen--the ones who others have given up on. I want to help the students that are slipping through the cracks, whether it be academically, mentally, or otherwise. I found my purpose again.
